is pulling ahead. giving terri mcauliffe a 12 point lead over republican ken cuccinelli. the libertarian has 8% of the vote. the campaign trail also heating up in this last week, today, cuccinelli attending a rally with bobby gindal and released a radio ad. >> he tries to become the state's next governor. we told you last week about the photo of doug at a party where teenager were drinking. in a conversation with another parent, about whether or not to call police to shut town that party, gansler said he had no moral responsibility for other people's children and has to do with whether you have a girl or a boy. >> wow. >> at some point, you have to question this. >> you have to question his judgment. and also wonder, what's the difference between girls and boys and under age drinking? if anything, boys might be more likely to make bad decisions. >> we talked about this earlier, sometimes boys do have some questionable judgment. all right, tonight's affordable cor act checkup takes to capitol hill where the administrator was on the hot seat today. lawmakers were asking about the number o
will probably be in virginia one week from today. ken cuccinelli versus terry mcauliffe. even people who have voted republican forever say they are not going to vote for ken cuccinelli. who knows, miracles do happen in politics, but ken cuccinelli appears to need one. e.w. jackson trails by more than ken cuccenlli does. so the governor's race looks like a democratic blowout. that means the most hotly contested election might be the attorney general's race in virginia. in that attorney general race, it's republican state senator mark obenshane who's running against democratic state senator mark herring. and right now, they appear to be very close. the senate democrats lead 49-46. which means the race is pretty close to predict with any confidence. and that has caused republicans to see mark obenshane -- now mark obenshane, if he is elected will be famous for that. the last thing he is famous for, though, was what he did in 2009 as a virginia state senator. he introduced a bill that year which said if a woman in virginia has a miscarriage without a doctor present, she must report that miscarria
. >> crunch time in virginia's race for governor and republican ken cuccinelli trying to make referendum on obama care. who's helping? rand paul. >> was the first attorney general to sue over obama care. >> he's counting on paul who's popular with libertarians to counter a spoiler campaign by a former republican running as a libertarian with about 10% in recent polls that might otherwise favor cuccinelli. democrat already had a stop from hillary clinton, now it's her husband's turn. >> bill clinton. >> democrats worry low turnout could let energized tea partiers determined to derail obama care decide the race. clinton's job is liberalizing. >> will you care as much as they do and show up and vote? >> the clintons know about health care debacles. hillary care was defeated in congress with bipartisan opposition in the '90s. she blasts the gop for trying to block obama care but seemed to brace a referendum on it well beyond virginia. >> the people will be able to judge whether they like it or not in the midterm election. >> the gop is gearing up. texas senator ted cruz spent the weekend hun
the implementation of the notorious federal health care law. >> reporter: ken cuccinelli the personification of the tea party. the polls say he is going to lose. his demise in virginia could be a sign of things to come. >> all right, joining me now is congressman gerry connolly, a democrat from virginia. congressman, thank you for taking some time tonight. i want to get to that election in virginia and what it says about where the country is and where the country is going, it's only five days away. but first i want to start at the basic issue of the poll numbers for the president today, which made so much news today. you heard that repetition in the package we just played there. george bush territory, the idea that here in his fifth year as president, president obama now falling to a level about where george w. bush was at this point in his fifth year. what do you make of the numbers you're seeing for the president right now, just as a democrat, as a member of his party, what do you attribute it to and are you worried about it? >> you know, i think every president has a rough patch. i'm old
. government shutdown. dangerous politics. first they gave us ken cuccinelli... and now mark obenshain for attorney general. obenshain voted to ban the birth control pill, and outlaw abortion, even for victims of rape and incest. and on gun safety, obenshain opposes comprehensive background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the violently mentally ill. mark obenshain: a dangerously wrong turn for virginia. i'm mark herring, candidate for attorney general and i sponsored this ad. . >>> 5:15 on this tuesday morning. as i drive into work, i see more decorates and lights for halloween. the forecast is what everyone is excited about. >> it's going to be a pretty good halloween around here. going to be mild and generally dry. if you're in western maryland or western virginia, there's a better chance you'll see a shower or two but here in the metro, east of the blue ridge, i think our rain will hold off for the most part till overnight friday night and during the day on friday. so friday will be an unsettled day. maybe some stronger thunderstorms as there's a pretty good co
auliffe is several points ahead of his republican rival, ken cuccinelli. the question is what it will lock like on november 5th. he brought in the big dog, long time friend and former president you may know by the name of bill clinton. boost turn out particularly among african-american voters in college towns. on sunday, clinton kicked off a four-day, nine-city tour of the state with mcoffive. casting cuccinelli as divicive. he urged democrats not to take anything for granted. >> the one political virtue of extremism is this. if you can really get people all hot and bothered and their inside is in knots, full of anger and steam coming out of their ears instead of a light bulb going off in their brains, they will vote. they will show up every time. >> republicans inside washington run against health care and republicans outside washington run against washington, democrats everywhere are running against the tea party. >> just recently my opponent, ken cuccinelli was campaigning at a gathering of his supporters with ted cruz. he refused to stand up for virginia and against ted cruz's shut down str
. of course, neither is anti sodomy laws, which is another focus of ken cuccinelli and rand paul, but that's another story for another day. the only thing i can figure here is it's hard for, quote, unquote, libertarians, right, to square their so-called love of freedom with an overbearing federal government that wants to tell women what to do with their bodies and essentially force them to give birth. so i think this eugenics thing is a way to say, well, if we don't force all women to have births, then the government is going to go to this place of eugenics. that's the only thing i can figure. it's a very bizarre situation. >> good try. erin, ken cuccinelli has already been struggling with female voters, in the most recent polls down a whopping 24 points. now he's got rapid paul going off about science fiction and the reason behind denying a woman control of her own body. is that a way to win back female voters? >> it's not the way to win back female voters. if you're looking at this double digit gap continuing to yawning and continuing to grow, these are people who supported personhood am
to you againics. the kentucky senator made those remarks while stumping for ken cuccinelli. president obama heads to the old dominion state this weekend to campaign for terry mcauliffe. things are looking good for the democrat's hope to reclaim the governor's mansion. mcauliffe opened up a double digit lead over cuccinelli. but it's the gender gap catching the most attention. the candidates are running about even among male voters but cuccinelli trails mcauliffe by 34 points. and rick ramsey is sentenced to 2 1/2 years in prison. the republican was convicted in june of extortion, bribery and fraud. the new fbi director is making changes to on the job training. income agents have to visit martin luther king memorial in washington. he said the move is a warning of the dangers of becoming untethered to oversight and accountability. women of the supreme court finally have the painting they deserve. artists unveiled it on monday at the smithsonian. it features the current female justice and sandra day o'connor. and that's your morning dish of scrambled politics. >>> joining me now for our
leaders like your next governor, ken cuccinelli. therveths don't come better than chris christie. >> they try to discern things. >> there are very real consequences when you operate ideologically. >> does ted cruz stand out to you? >> put five red necks on a mower. >> i'm being unfairly targeted by a bunch of hacks and haters. if dueling were legal in kentucky it would be a challenge. >> the last five years have not been a great time. >> a jumble of unfocused noise out of touch with the things you care about. ♪ like a song you hear that lingers in your ear ♪ ♪ but you can't forget from sundown ♪ ♪ >> this week marks one year since the 2012 presidential election and if this is the annual checkup, it's largely the president's health care law that's going through a major stress test. and right now, the white house is reaching out for support in the face of continuous oh criticism of the law and its rollout. later this evening, the president will speak about the benefits of health care reform at an organizing for action event. and later this week, he'll travel to texas to t
.. ithe dangerously mentally ill. criminals. endangering our families. ken cuccinelli opposed closing the gun show loophole - against comprehensive background checks at gun shows for criminals and the dangerously mentally ill. siding with the nra and undermining law enforcement. no wonder the washington post calls cuccinelli polarizing, provocative and partisan. cuccinelli. too extreme for virginia independence usa pac sponsored this ad. more than a new interior lighting system. ♪ it is more than a hot stone massage. and more than your favorite scent infused into the cabin. it is a completely new era of innovation. and the highest expression of mercedes-benz. introducing the 2014 s-class. the best or nothing. >>> good morning. welcome back to wusa9.

washington post" poll shows him leading ken cuccinelli 51-39 with libertarian candidate behind. president obama will help mcauliffe campaign this weekend as the race heads into the final stretch. >>> penn state will be paying millions of dollars in a settlement with more than two dozen sex abuse victims of jerry sandusky. the university will may $60 million to 26 of sandusky's victims. the settlements will not be funded student tuition, taxpayer funds or donations. sandusky is currently serving between 30 and 60 years behind bars after being convicted last year on 45 different counts of sex abuse. he's appealing the verdict. penn state president said quote, we hope this is another step forward in the healing process for those hurt by mr. sandusky and another step forward for penn state. we cannot undo what has been done but we can and must do everything possible to learn from this and ensure it never happens again at penn state. >>> two oklahoma inmates are back in jail after a pretty unlikely escape over the weekend. yesterday we told you about four inmates snuck out of a county detentio
that the cuccinelli loss was because he was too muted and because of the advisers didn't let ken be ken or does the prevailing view hold that when you hold the center, you are doomed to lose? swing states? the guy who went for a non-tea party strategy is taking a page from george w. bush's playbook trying to prove electability to national republican donors and republicans across the country and hope he ends up on wednesday morning the front runner of the establishment wing for 2016. the campaign is not hiding the message. look at the release called blue jersey. in the overwhelming democratic garden state, no republican candidate has earned higher than 50% of the vote in 28 years. >> for the republican party that lost last year in the presidential election, for the republican party that lost seats in the u.s. senate, for the republican party that has been disspirited for the last number of months, we need to show the republican party in america that we can win again. guess where they will be watching on tuesday night to see if we win. right here in new jersey. they will be watching us. >> christ
is going to be and how bad the loss is for ken cuccinelli. the story behind chris christie is going to be huge. you may have picked somebody for the short list on that martinez ticket. good signs that the party is waking up and seeing that we have to make big changes. >> you said something about mainstream and i was picking out the four points and you can feel the narrative developing. we will have a republican primary and a special election taking place in tuesday in al bam a. tea party versus non-tea party. this is a place where the tea party normally should win and i argue the expectations say the tea party is the place to lose. if they don't, it adds to the narrative. mainstream hasn't stopped the tea party before if mainstream groups are going to kiss of death. how do you prevent that from being the case in the primaries in 2014? >> i think you are right about the tea party, but i don't think the business community and mainstream republicans have really organized effectively and funded effectively in an effort to recruit mainstream candidates against the candidates and do it ea
auliffe leads ken cuccinelli by 12 points. his largest margin in the poll yet. and when mcauliffe supporters asked what motivates their vote, as i said, nearly two-thirds, 64%, say it's the chance to vote against the republican cuccinelli. by just not being the extreme right winger, the democrat gets the bulk of the votes. this matches, by the way, almost the 65% of virginia voters who have now said they have an unfavorable opinion of the republican party nationally suggesting the force driving this election of virginia next tuesday is the negative voter feeling about the republican party nationally. gene, this is stark stuff. i know we live in washington. i know virginia's to our south across the potomac. but this is the canary in the mine that just died for the republican party. >> well, i think it did. if you look at virginia, it's a purple state. it was red, it's become more blue. it's gone for obama a couple of times. but it's very close. it's a changing state. growing hispanic population. it's like the country in some sense. >> the numbers are almost exactly the same as the numbers nat
to be in the hands of the democrat, terry acall live. "the washington post" poll showing him up on ken cuccinelli the republican attorney general there 51-39, libertarian candidate polling at 8%. there's a big gap among women. mcauliffe leads cuccinelli by 24 points and i under the president will be going into virginia this weekend, jim. >> if i were the president that's what i would do. we're up by 12. no chance that democrats wouldn't win this seat. i would go in there and help claim part of the victory. mcauliffe is nervous. you want help from groups that helped obama. there's no mystery in the outcome. inside the white house worried that the clintons are getting the attention for spending so much time on this race in the state, building up their political operation and will they get the credit for the victory? partially. at the end of the day this was a superior candidate in an environment that very much favored democrats. >> jim, let me ask enthusiast, from outside of virginia not following the race close lui it makes no sense to me a libertarian candidate who run against cuccinelli whose co
talk politics, virginia governor. bill clinton was out campaigning for terry mcauliffe and ken cuccinelli, his opponent, republican opponent bringing in rand paul. this is a special relationship. this goes beyond politic, bill and terry on the road again. >> the ultimate buddy movie. they have been paling around for years while he was in the white house, after the white house. i see them all sorts of different places. when the president wakes up in the middle of the night and wants somebody to play cards with or wants somebody to chat with on the phone or read drafts of his autobiography to, that was terry mcauliffe. for those of us who have covered him for many, many years, the thought of him being governor is an amazing new chapter in this buddy movie. >> i also wanted to ask about dick cheney because chris cillizza, dick cheney has been doing interviews, of course, about his new book, "heart." asked about the man running against liz cheney and this is what he had to say. >> mike and i also said we're fishing buddies, which is not true. never happened. the fact of the matter
, it's idea eelg with a very conservative ken cuccinelli in blue new jersey, electability with the conservative and pragmatic christie leading the ticket. one is doing better than the other. there's an interesting poll that came out in "washington post" that said 64% support mcauliffe and voting against cuccinelli. this idealogical extreme rhetoric from the ticket in virginia has been such a turf off to the moderate voters, they base beingally handed this on a matter. >> why you at home, even if you know nothing about virginia politics, krystal can weigh in. this is a battle for the republican party's soul right now. and there's a contingent that called romney republican in name only and feels they need to push more and more extreme. there's a swath of america looking for moderation in the republican party. i had a conversation with senator mccain where he said publicly several times, we need moderates. so those two races are described showing us that tension playing out in real time. it will be significant. >> seeing the clintons and potus and rand paul reminded me the na
. ken cuccinelli, down south in virginia, he's a pro-life guy who's expected according to the polls to go down. so, he's expected to go down in a mixed state and christie is going to win in a deep blue state. i'm trying to make my point here, wow, pro-life politics and social issues can be very interesting. >> first of all, i think chris christie should really enjoy this moment, when you read "double down" and you see the kinds of stuff that has not come out about him yet, when you talk about people in new jersey, about property taxes going up and the bond rating going down, poverty going up, i think the myth of chris christie is going to pop like a lead balloon. i think this is his last great moment. when you want to run as a fiscally conservative and your taxes are going up and you have the worst bond rating in the state. >> let's separate those questions. i read parts of the book about chris christie, what are you specifically referring to? i saw the stuff about his vetting file. it doesn't seem to be disqualifying. >> listen, the stuff that i have seen, i haven't read the full b
's the only democrat, he gets my vote the devil himself would be better on women's issues than ken cuccinelli. tom, i guess, this to me seems in virginia the ultimate test of what the tea party can do in a general election in a swing state. terry mcauliffe is a weak democratic candidate this is an off year election. it should favor the republican. all these conditionsist that should make this a winnable race for republicans. like you say, the fact that cuccinelli will lose this, is there any sign, are you hearing any seen from the republicans of rethinking their strategy, rethinking that convention and more broadly rethinking the leaning on the pea party? >> i think, lock, the party has become estranged from the business base, you have the lt. gov. not endorsing cuccinelli. a number of high profile republicans not supporting the ticket at this point. there is a lot of rethinking. remember the party is controlled by the nomination process which happens to be convention at this point. a very conservative central committee. so for all of this i think it will take a few years to sort out. this is
